She Hate Me

She Hate Me is a 2004 independent comedy-drama film directed by Spike Lee and starring Anthony Mackie, Kerry Washington, Ellen Barkin, Monica Bellucci, Brian Dennehy, Woody Harrelson, Bai Ling, and John Turturro. The film garnered controversy, and, as with many of Lee's films, touches on comedy, drama, and politics.

I think it is a masterpiece

John Henry "Jack" Armstrong (Anthony Mackie) is a Harvard graduate and a financially successful, upwardly mobile executive at a biotechnology firm. After a colleague commits suicide, Armstrong uncovers corrupt business practices and attempts to blow the whistle. He's promptly fired on false grounds of security fraud, and his assets are frozen. Things are looking bleak, when all of a sudden his ex-fiancée Fatima Goodrich (Kerry Washington), who came out as a lesbian and broke up with him four years ago, turns up at his door. She and her girlfriend Alex Guerrero (Dania Ramirez) offer him a proposition: they want babies, and they're willing to offer him $10,000 dollars to impregnate them both. After he reluctantly agrees, Fatima brings him friends of hers, all of whom likewise want kids and are willing to pay him $10,000 to impregnate them.

She Hate Me

Lesbos who got the D

Meanwhile, he pushes for his whistleblowing to be taken seriously.

None of the reviews online really does this movie the justice it deserves. It really blew my mind to see how Spike Lee masterfully tied in his political activism. I think most people missed the real point of this movie, being too busy focusing on the sex scenes. There was a quote at the beginning of the movie which really stood out and was very significant to this movie which came from an African Proverb.

To not know is bad, to not wish to know is worse!

She Hate Me was really all about the "Whistleblower".

Such as:


Frank Wills

Frank Wills was born on this date in 1948. He was an African American Security guard at the Watergate office complex in Washington D. C.
From Aiken County, South Carolina, he was a principal player in the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon. On duty on the night of June 17, 1972, he noticed a strip of tape holding a door unlocked. He removed the tape and when he later saw another piece of tape in its place, he became suspicious and called the District of Columbia police. The unlocked door led to the offices of the Democratic National Committee. Inside, police found a group of burglars, some with electronic bugging equipment. The burglars had ties to the Committee to Reelect the President (Nixon) and thus began the Watergate scandal that 22 months later forced President Nixon to resign.
Though Wills played himself in the movie "All The President's Men" that told the story of the Watergate scandal, Wills never recovered from his moments of fame. After his part in history, he quit his job as a security guard because he did not receive a raise for his role in discovering the burglary. Wills worked for the comedian/activist Dick Gregory, lived in the Bahamas, and had a Harry Nilsson album dedicated to him. He made some money on the talk show circuit but was unable to hold down a steady job. He returned home to South Carolina in the mid-70s and cared for his stroke victim mother for several years.
He was convicted of shoplifting in 1983. After her death in 1993, he was so destitute that he was washing his clothes in a bucket until James Kilby founded an organization, Treat Every American Right (TEAR) to raise money for Wills. Frank Wills died penniless from a brain tumor on September 27th, 2000.

Equal Rights For Divorce Fathers

Equal Rights For Divorce Fathers

I came across this movie at the perfect time in my life to really be able to see it in a new light. Right now, I am a whistleblower. Currently involved in a court case with Attorney Kurt Harris due to a website I published for a potential client, exposing corruption and fraud in a company formally known as Equal Rights For Divorced Fathers. Case No: A-18-781255-C, in which it was brought to my attention by this client that Kurt Harris was the new owner and that he heard that the company was involved in fee splitting with non-attorneys. Helping paralegals engage in the unauthorized practice of law. Failure to have a business license for the paralegal service he was running. Failure to pay payroll taxes because everyone was working off of the books and under the table, failure to report income.

Upon being given this information by my client I accepted the offer to help expose this information. I then searched for the domain name equalrightsfordivorcedfathers.com and it was available so I purchased it on behalf of my client. Upon receiving the information he wanted me to post I told him it would be up in 24 hours at which point he can look at it, add or make changes to the content. After the content was posted the client was never seen or spoken to after that at which point the website was removed.

This organization previously has been a legacy in the Las Vegas community for about 30 years. Equal Rights For Divorced Fathers has helped countless fathers be reunited with their children.  I was around during this time helping the previous owner Ernest Del Casal. After Ernest sold the company to Kurt Harris I stopped visiting the place.

According to recent reviews:

Not worth the time or money. I went through a divorce and now I need help but they want to charge to submit paperwork to the courts and refer you to an attorney to do the rest. Hire an attorney and he will do it for you and go to court with you. This place is trying to make money not help you. I was more confused when I walked out. They try to use legal terms to confuse you and make you feel like you need them.

Equal rights for divorced fathers in Las Vegas is awful. I went to see Scott to file a child support motion on a Friday and he told me to come back Monday with all paperwork and it would be between 200-250 for a motion. I get there on Monday with all the paperwork and he tells me he can’t do it because he “ had clients”. I was their with cash so I was wondering how am I not a client. He then referred me out to a woman for the paperwork for 350 dollars. I get to woman’s office and I see another guy from equal rights for divorced fathers their in waiting room.

This place needs to change name and I am helping the word get out that they could care less about helping dads. This place has changed for the worst and do not go their.

All about the money baby! ! George Boyer is the type of guy to tell you anything after getting you're money, I was on crunch time to get a counter response done and the idiot lied to me and told me he sent a copy to the judge via email I take accountability For me being late getting it done that's all my fault the only part I didn't respect is him telling me he sent a copy to the judge and when I went to family court after my hearing the lady at the window asked me why im filing the paper late i explained to her what george told me and she said it was a lie the judge gets the paperwork through me filing not in an email, Then you got the little guy in the office running the joint like it's the service "who you waiting on? " like ppl sit there for fun,all about the money that about it after they get it it's like mood changes,I had so much stuff I wanted to say in my counter and they give you a sheet saying keep you're response to a certain minimum which is hard when it's you're kid you're fighting for getting paid $125-150 and you want someone to keep their response a couple lines long is hard and seemed to agitate George that I wanted to feel like I'm getting my money's worth.I ended up getting joint sole and physical custody without turning in the counter or using their "recommended " lawyer. I honestly feel like you get what you pay for going here,can't say the service was useless or not helpful but when you lie to someone who you've been hitting over the head every visit $120 here $150 there it is going to reflect on the service,no need to lie I asked him about 4 days before my hearing how the judge is going to go over my response in such short time and he actually told me he sent a copy to the judge's email.Live and learn I know to get things done sooner even if I need to take off work,and also to stack my money so I can pay lawyers if I want better service in the future

Who Helps You in a Real Estate Deal?

Understanding which type of relationship you have with your agent, and also his broker, will certainly assist you to discuss the very best feasible offer, whether you're a customer or a vendor.

When you hire a realty agent, it is essential to comprehend whose side she's on as you choose a home to purchase (or detail your existing home available for sale) as well as head in the direction of closing, where the real transfer of ownership happens. There is a great deal of ways agents might stand for clients. Yours might stand for:

By recognizing where your agent's commitments lie, you'll know what you can inform her and also what you can not. (If, as an example, you're managing an agent that does not represent you however is representing the sellers of a home you wish to acquire, you don't intend to tell her how high you're eager to go on the price.)

In some states, your agent needs to discuss the kind of depiction (likewise called agency) she's offering you and also ask you to sign an agreement determining that the agent and also her broker stand for. If an agent doesn't raise the subject or ask you to authorize an agreement, ask about it so you know whom she's standing for.

Regardless of what form of depiction you consent to, watch out for your own interests as well as comprehend the 6 ways brokers and also agents stand for clients below.

1. Customer's Agency

Want the agent to represent you as well as only you when you purchase a home to make sure that all the details you share with her are confidential? Select a unique customer's agent.

Who pays the purchaser's agent? Surprisingly, even if you employ a customer's agent, you can still ask the sellers to pay his charge. You can pay your purchaser's agent on your own, or ask the vendor (or the seller's agent) to pay your agent a share of their sales commission.

2. Seller's or Listing Agency

A unique seller's agent stands for just the sellers, not the buyers. If your unique vendor's agent discovers a purchaser for your home, he might have another agent-- maybe even a colleague from the exact same brokerage-- represent the purchaser in your transaction. In some cases, the purchaser might have no agent in all. Your unique seller's agent is faithful only to you, so it's OK to review strategy with him.

Does that pay the seller's agent? The seller pays a commission to the vendor's agent from the profits of the sale. The vendor's agent may, and also typically does, share the commission with the property buyer's agent.

3. Subagency or Cooperating Agency

Let's say you discover a home online. You call the real estate brokerage that's using the home and an agent that answers the phone uses to reveal you the home today. You think, "Great, she's revealing me the home, she has to benefit me." Unless you've hired her as your customer's agent, she's working for the sellers.

The same point can occur if you visit a home with an agent whose broker agent does not hold the listing. That agent is helping you, yet she's not your agent; she's accepting the sellers to get you to buy their home.

In some states, that agent may additionally be a subagent (think subcontractor) of the vendor's agent. Some states permit subagents, some don't.
Bottom line: Always ask any agent showing you a home whom she represents. Never ever tell a subagent anything you don't want the sellers to recognize.

Does that pay the subagent? The seller's agent shares her payment with the subagent.

4. Twin Agency

In numerous states, agents can represent both the purchaser and the vendor. These twin agents seek to bring both sides with each other. They can't do something that's just helpful for you and also except the opposite.

A double agent scenario often emerges when one agent represents the buyers and the sellers of the same home. The agent needs to divulge the connection and also, in numerous states, you need to agree in writing to such dual depiction due to the potential for conflicts rate of interest.

While twin agents have a responsibility not to share any type of confidential information of a client without their permission, make sure to notify the agent that the information is personal and also recognize that any type of non-confidential info might be shown to the people beyond of the deal.

Does that pay the twin agent? Usually, the vendor pays the payment.

5. Designated or Appointed Agency

What occurs when the purchaser's agent as well as the vendor's agent both work for the very same broker?

To ensure both sides of the home sale are dealt with relatively in this situation, some brokers mark an agent in their firm to stand for only the buyers as well as another to represent just the sellers. A designated agent or appointed agent will certainly be loyal to you as well as just you. The method aids stay clear of a dual agency circumstance.

Does that pay the designated agents? The sellers pay the commission and also the market agents share it.

6. Nonagency or Transaction Brokerage

In some states, you can deal with an agent who works as a facilitator. By doing so, you established a nonagency, transactional, or facilitator partnership with the "agent" although that person is practically not your agent under the legislation.

Normally, nonagents owe you fewer commitments and tasks than those that are really agents. They would certainly still be called for to treat you rather, yet wouldn't always owe you privacy.

Nonagent obligations differ from state to state. To learn what those services require in your state, ask the broker and agent.

Who pays the nonagent? You, as the seller, may consent to pay a flat cost or a commission, which would be stated in the listing arrangement.

A REALTOR ® can assist you to offer quicker, get a far better rate, and overview you via what can be a complex process. So you'll wish to find an agent who suits your needs. Recognizing which sort of partnership you have with your agent, as well as his broker, will assist you to discuss the very best possible bargain, whether you're a customer or a vendor.

How Do I Lead My Children Spiritually?

Father and daughter coloring

Teach [God’s words] to your children. Talk about them all the time—whether you’re at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night, or getting up in the morning.

DEUTERONOMY 11:19

It can be hard to explain your faith to your children in ways they can understand. Fortunately, you don’t have to know everything or have it all figured out. In fact, when you explore your faith together with your kids, you’re giving them something more valuable than just information: your time and attention.


Experience the Big Stories of the Bible, Together.

Of course, you could just open Bible App for Kids on your phone and hand it to your child (maybe so you can get some chores done). But, consider trying this: sit with your child in your lap and ask them to show you a story. Let your child show you how the app works. (Ask lots of questions!) Sharing the app together will create natural opportunities for you to talk… and you’ll learn what’s on your child’s mind.

Get the App


Explore These Free Resources, Together.

BibleAppForKids.com is the companion website to Bible App for Kids. It has coloring pages for them, parent guides for you, activities for you both, streaming video episodes, and more. Consider watching a video together and talking about it. Or print some coloring sheets, then color them together. All of these are completely free. And, just as with the app, exploring the website together will give you plenty to talk about.

Visit the Website


Find Your People.

While you could share your family’s values with your kids (and you should), they’ll actually absorb much more from what they see your family living out every day. It’s a great idea to surround your family with other families that share similar values. And if you don’t have a church home yet, the Events feature in the Bible App can help you find gatherings taking place near you.

Look for Events


Take Some Pictures, Together

Do your kids understand that they live in a world that God made for them? Use Bible Lens to take some selfies together, then talk about the Bible verses it suggests for your pictures. (Experiment with different Bible versions to find one that’s easy for your children to understand.) Let your kids take pictures of things they like, like birds, trees, pets, and toys, and then talk about what Bible Lens says about them. Introduce them to the wonder of God’s world that’s all around them.

Get Bible Lens


You’re Already Leading Your Family Spiritually

Everything we’ve offered here are just suggestions. We hope they’ll spark even more ideas for ways you can invest in your family. Whether or not you choose to try any of them, realize this: you’re already leading your family. Whatever you choose to do each day, your children are learning from you that those are the things you value. Be intentional about the direction you choose to go as a family… and do it together.

How Do I Encourage My Family to Engage with God’s Word?

Mother holding her daughter

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living…

2 TIMOTHY 3:16

We all know someone struggling to connect with God’s Word. Perhaps they’re experiencing pain or loss. Perhaps they’re involved in something they shouldn’t be. Maybe they just don’t see how the Bible is relevant to them.

Whether it’s an aunt, uncle, parent, child, or a friend you consider family — how can we, as followers of Christ, help loved ones experience the transformative Word of God for themselves?

Here are three ways you can help your family get into God’s Word:


Be an Example.

God’s Word encourages us to set an example in what we say, how we act, and how we love. Why? Because how we choose to act and react has a lasting impact.

How can you set an example? Agree on a time each day when you’ll study the Bible together. (You could even memorize the Bible App’s Verse of the Day together.) Talk about Scripture whenever you have time together: at breakfast, on the way to school or work, and in the evening. Your interaction with God’s Word will influence how your family perceives God’s Word.


Make God’s Word Personal.

You can’t force your family to care about the Bible, but you can help them discover the value God’s Word can add to their lives.

Consider sharing a Verse Image from the Bible App (or one you created on Bible Lens) with someone who needs encouragement or wisdom. If you have kids in your life, download the Bible App for Kids and complete a story together. Try reading from a Bible version your family can enjoy together. When you help your family see how they can apply God’s Word to their lives, they’ll be more likely to own their spiritual growth.


Keep Showing Up.

If growth doesn’t happen immediately, it’s normal to get discouraged. Remind yourself why you’re doing this: these are your people, and you love them. You know how much better your life is with God’s Word in it, and you want that for them.

Keep being diligent. When your family sees that your commitment to the Scriptures is an important part of your life and not just a phase you’re going through, this will impact them more than anything you say.

If you do start feeling discouraged, consider starting a Family Plan to keep your daily devotions on track. Surround yourself with friends who will encourage you as you pursue leading your family spiritually.

Ultimately, it’s not all up to you. God’s words have the ability to transform lives, but we get to play an active part in that transformation. You are not your family’s Savior — but you can be a cultivator of Spiritual growth.

Start engaging with God’s Word together on the Bible App, Bible Lens, and Bible App for Kids, and let us know what tools have helped your family grow spiritually.
